Pacquiao/Hatton

The Ricky Hatton/Manny Pacquiao junior welterweight bout is less than three weeks away. Hatton is at his best at 140 pounds and Pacquiao has shown he can get it done at various weights, including a dominating win at 147 pounds last December against Oscar De La Hoya.

Pacquiao is in his prime right now and is more focused and determined that ever. Hatton, under the direction of trainer Floyd Mayweather, has shown improvement in recent months. It's going to be a great fight, but I still think Pacquiao will be win, taking control of the fight in the final part of the fight to win by decision. What do you boxing fans think?
